Part 1 of many. :)
Hey! It's another set of news magazines! The last time I reviewed a bunch of these were the Chevrolet News On Parade reels, which were ok, but since it was made by Jem Handy, it was too Auto-focused. Now, we get a more "newsy" organization's set.. And from the looks of it, should be immensely entertaining!
Korean War Overview: Not much is said here, we watch military maneuvers, MAccarthur arriving, more maneuvers. I did like the drop of supplies from the jet.
French Premier arrives in New York: Pretty interesting, as we see him tour around before eventually meeting with Truman, where the "negotiations" were "successful".
Red Cross Blood Program: Pretty standard plea for more blood, as it's needed at the war front (great shot of a nurse tiptoeing through a field) and at home, where we are helping the injured war vets (to bowl!)
Underwater Army Vehicles: The army introduces their new vehicles.. they run under water! Mind you, you need an aqualung for this, but still, this is a very strange vehicle indeed. One wonders WHY they would need it. Were they going to drive from New York to Korea?
A pretty standard review of model trains is offered next, Noithing too remarkable.
A NY church that can switch denominations by means of a switch is shown next, which is very interesting. Not too sure if the church is still around.
A Track and Field championships event is overviewed next, where we focus on a sprint runner a shot putter and a pole vaulter (who was very happy to win)
To wrap it up, a somewhat boring overview of Australia is presented, and why the Aussies are so important to us,
After seeing some of the others, this set is one of the more boring ones.. There are more entertaining.
